  • post Bonnie Wright: from Harry Potter to a menopause movie - 25 May
  • Playing Ginny Weasley aged nine was Wright?s first job. Now in her late 20s, she talks about directing her Potter peers and her new AS Byatt AdaptationAn unassuming hairdressing salon in a shopping precinct in Lincoln is an unlikely venue for the world premiere of a film directed by a globally famous actor. But behind a velvet rope, between the washbasins, that is exactly what is happening in Sincil Salon in Sincil Street in Lincoln town centre. The film is called Medusa?s Ankles, and the director is Bonnie Wright ? better known to tens of millions as Ginny Weasley in the Harry Potter film series.The venue, in fact, is wholly appropriate: Medusa?s Ankles, adapted from a short story by AS Byatt, is set entirely in a hairdresser?s. It stars Kerry Fox as a woman disconcerted by the signs of ageing ? particularly her greying hair, which she is determined to keep ?natural? ? and Jason Isaacs as a charismatic, bullying hairdresser with whom she has a fraught, fractious relationship. The 20-minute film is showing over three days in the salon, which will be open for normal hairdressing operation throughout. Continue reading...
  • post Solo: A Star Wars Story: is Alden Ehrenreich fit to fill the Falcon? ? discuss with spoilers - 25 May
  • Did the latest Star Wars film overcome its troubled production history and provide a compelling backstory for the series? real rogue one?Has there ever been a Star Wars movie with a more troubled production history than Solo: A Star Wars Story? Well, yes. But this one certainly hasn?t exactly been a walk in the verdant, moon-lit Endorian forests. A change of director, reshoots, talk of acting coaches for the new Han, Alden Ehrenreich ? none of it, frankly, boded too well. But rejoice, for critics say Solo isn?t half as bad as you might have expected. In Ron Howard?s safe pair of hands, it has emerged as a veritable, if minor, critical hit, with a Rotten Tomatoes rating of 71% ?fresh?.

  • post What might Weinstein?s books mean for his defence? - 25 May
  • The disgraced mogul was seen clutching two hardbacks on his way to hand himself over to the authorities. What does this reading matter suggest about his state of mind? On his way to turn himself into police over sexual assault charges, Harvey Weinstein was filmed carrying three sizeable books, two of which have been identified as Something Wonderful: Rodgers and Hammerstein?s Broadway Revolution by Todd S Purdum, and Elia Kazan: A Biography by Richard Schickel.Something Wonderful was published last month to some acclaim, and it is easy to imagine Weinstein might see something of himself in the story of successful showmen impresarios credited with changing the cultural landscape.

  • post Unseen on screen: the secret movie cameos you might not know about - 25 May
  • Deadpool 2 and Black Panther?s hidden big star cameos join a long history of films with some A-list tricks up their sleevesThat wily Deadpool always has a few tricks up his sleeve. The madcap mercenary returned in his sequel vehicle last week, and with a few unexpected friends in tow: both Matt Damon and Brad Pitt made cameo appearances in the film, though a viewer would be forgiven for having missed them. Pitt appeared for all of eight seconds as the vanishing Vanisher, and Damon was unrecognizable under a mound of facial prosthetics and makeup for his role as an obese country boy. Known to wrap in-jokes around other in-jokes then baked into a third in-joke, Deadpool has made a stock in trade out of blink-and-you?ll-miss-it gags such as these. This comes in the wake of the revelation that Black Panther included such an Easter egg as well, deploying Daily Show host Trevor Noah?s South African accent for the voice of Shuri?s ship?s onboard computer.

  • post Abduction, imprisonment, Taliban: the new cartoons adults ought to watch - 25 May
  • With a long production process allowing real voices to be heard and broad portrayals making it relatable, The Breadwinner proves that kids? films can appropriately handle conflictWhen Nora Twomey first showed her new film to audiences, the reaction was surprising. The Breadwinner is a children?s animation about an 11-year-old girl named Parvana growing up in Afghanistan under the Taliban. It contains harrowing scenes of abduction, imprisonment, execution, warfare, and brutal repression of women. Twomey discovered that it was the adults who were most upset. Teachers and parents in the audience found it almost too emotional; younger viewers, less so.?Oftentimes adults can get really traumatised thinking about what children are experiencing watching a film but the actual experience can be something completely different,? says Twomey. ?If you have a child protagonist in a film, the children in the audience take their cue from them. If the child in the film can take what?s going on, they can lead the children in the audience.? Continue reading...
  • post Harvey Weinstein: the remarkable downfall of Hollywood's biggest mogul - 25 May
  • The world was watching Weinstein?s surrender, handcuffed ?perp walk? and quiet exit from a New York courthouse on bailAs Harvey Weinstein stood in court listening to prosecutors outline the charges against him Friday, the formerly powerful film producer mostly stood with his mouth open and his eyes low.Then finally, as Manhattan assistant attorney Joan Illuzzi-Orbon crystalized the accusations against him, there was a change in expression. ?This defendant used his position, money and power to lure young women into situations where he was able to violate them sexually,? she said, causing Weinstein to raise his brows, almost as though surprised to hear it.

  • post Harvey Weinstein's arrest: the moment the #MeToo flood burst the dam - 25 May
  • The levees that protected men like Weinstein from consequences have collapsed, allowing the victims? wrath to rush inHarvey Weinstein is well practiced at grand arrivals, having made them annually at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, where his movie company dominated Oscar night with almost predictable regularity.On Friday, he made a grand arrival with a difference. Instead of the red carpet in LA, he was led up the austere grey steps of a New York City courthouse; rather than mingling among the stars in suit and bow tie, he emerged from a police station in blazer and blue jersey flanked by detectives, head bowed, hands behind his back in handcuffs.
